MF Husain- Respectfully Paradoxical

11 Jun

At the age of 95, controversial Indian artist, MF Husain, had passed away.  A unique figure, he was love and hated.  His controversial paintings and lifestyle had drawn hatred from both Hindus and Muslims.  Still, as attention-grabbing as his art might have been, his lifestyle was that of a very humble one.  Growing Up, Husain would sleep on the sidewalks, wear extremely simple clothes, and walk barefoot.  His art  was all about reflection on society, spirituality and living-being interaction.  Quietly living amongst people, he spoke loudly through his art.
